Many positives, nice location, interesting decor, lots of activity. However, the piano music and singing is so loud you cannot talk to those you are seated with (and we were in the far back corner). The piano playing was very good, the singing not so much. Many people are around the piano so not... read more

We were there on a quiet night (the weather was horrible) and had appetizers, a main course and also dessert ... everything was delicious. The restaurant is nicely decorated and there is cool live music every night. Plus the staff is friendly and helpful ! We'll definitely comeback if we're in the area.

Went for out for our anniversary, ate at that the restaurant once before enjoyed our meal. This time we felt the service and the food very pretty poor. Paid a fair amount of money and were very disappointed. Probably will never go back.

Dined at Adam's with a friend and totally enjoyed the experience! Was not our first visit to Adam's. First time we had several appetizers and drinks. Last visit we got more serious! I had the beef filet which was mouth-watering good! Tender and flavorful....one of the best I've had and the sides were the finishing touch for a great meal.... More

Went on a slow Saturday with a group of 6. Took twenty minutes to get waters on the table and even longer for the drinks from the bar. Waiter was new and did not have any clue what their menu was all about. Got a wedge salad (that is $10) The "lettuce" was white and far from crisp. After telling... More

The wait staff is excellent, the menu has a great selection, and the desserts are outstanding! Nice place for a date night or celebrating with friends. Our recent visit was to celebrate a birthday. The fried greens tomatoes and crab cakes are incredible! They cook steaks to perfection and the salmon last trip was mouth watering!

Tried this place out during Gwinnett Restaurant Week. Had the $21.21 special menu. We had both the salmon and the shoulder fillet. Both were very good. Salad was excellent and the fried green tomatoes with goat cheese was probably the best I have ever tasted. If you like bar drinks, try the Mary Pickford. It was refreshingly not sweet and... More

Just back from one of the worst restaurant experiences I have had in a very long time. Exceptionally slow service, kitchen ran out of items we had ordered, food was served luke warm or cold, and no one seemed to care or notice. I will never go back.
